ALITO UPDATE: Orin Kerr looks at an Alito abortion decision that’s getting less attention. I spoke to a colleague in the hallway a few minutes ago who has argued before Alito and likes him. He said Alito was way too conservative for his taste (not surprising), but that Alito is fair and smart. He thinks Alito is a lot like John Roberts as a pick. Ann Althouse, meanwhile, thinks he’s a stronger choice than John Roberts. More here from Julian Sanchez.

UPDATE: David Hardy looks at Alito and the Second Amendment.
